The Human Machine Collaboration – Vehicle Experience in Automation

PACCAR Innovation Center


This talk focuses on human-machine collaboration in automation, especially semi-autonomous systems. Designing with resilience and flexibility in mind, automated vehicle systems need to align with human trust even in adverse or dynamic conditions. This presentation dives into exploring collaborative and team-based human machine models around the topic of “ transition of control” from automation. We will cover topics such as: - Challenges in driver distraction and driver behaviors with automation - Building human-machine cognitive systems that support driver automation collaboration, instead of divided human vs. machine roles - Examples of human-automation teaming in complex systems from aviation and defense - Design Research methods to better understand driver behaviors in various automation scenarios About the speaker: Nandita Mangal is a product lead for automated vehicle experience at Aptiv. Frequently combining design and engineering practices, she focuses on building intelligent in-vehicle experiences for drivers as well as passengers in autonomous vehicles. She works on automated mobility efforts with OEMs as well as ride-sharing providers. Prior to joining Aptiv, she played an integral role in entire product life cycles for field robotics, new ground vehicle technologies in affiliation with army research lab & defense. Location is at Paccar Silicon Valley Innovation Center, they will be graciously hosting us. Agenda: 6:00 pm - Doors open 6:30 pm - Presentation 8:00 pm - Vacate premises
